READ: Hebrews 12:22-25 Open Heaven 2 April 2021

22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

The Spirit, the word (of God) and the blood (of Jesus) are three irresistible and potent weapons of spiritual warfare provided by God the Father for His children. John 6:63 says:

“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”

John 1:3 also talks about the immense power of the word. It says “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.”

This is why the word can put any abnormality in your life under control, just as He did in Genesis 1:1-3 bringing order to a world that had been full of chaos.

From Genesis 1:1-3, you would see that the Spirit and the word complemented each other to bring order on earth. However, sin altered the plan of God for man. It took the blood of Jesus to rescue man from eternal damnation. Beloved, it is only when you have allowed the atoning blood of Jesus to deal with sin in your life that you will experience salvation (Hebrews 9:28). This is when all evil and calamity, including death, would be rendered powerless in your life.

Thus, when a child of God is filled with the Holy Spirit as well as armed with the word of God and the blood of Jesus, we can say that victory is fully decided in his or her favour. Why then have some believers resigned themselves to defeat? Some are involved in sins so shameful that, when confronted, they say “It is the devil’s work”, as though John 10:10 had been erased from their Bible. These people do not honour God’s word by keeping it, so it can’t work for them.

When a so-called child of God blatantly disregards God’s word that says “Abstain from all appearance of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:22) and he continues to engaged in sexual immorality, the word cannot work for him, the blood of Jesus would not avail for him. I pray that the Holy Spirit, the word of God and the blood of Jesus will work for you this season in Jesus’ name. For that to happen, you must ensure that you do not grieve the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:30).

ACTION POINT: – Open Heaven 2 April 2021 Friday

Begin to put the word of God into proper application in your daily life. Plead the blood of Jesus on all negative situations in your life and do not grieve the Holy Spirit.

HYMN 29: What Can Wash Away My Sin?

1. What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow!
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

2. For my pardon this I see
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea;
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

3. Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus:
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

4. This is all my hope and peace.
Nothing but the blood of Jesus:
This is all my righteousness;
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
